Washington, D.C. fall scenes from Weather Gang readers


C&O Canal at Carderock the morning of Nov. 9 (Harold Pfohl)

Inspired by the stunning set of Rock Creek Park fall foliage photos by Capital Weather Gang’s Ian Livingston (which appeared in the B section of Thursday’s print edition), a number of Post subscribers sent us some of their best fall shots.

What a treat it was to view these emails. From western Virginia to the eastern shore of Maryland, I saw some amazing autumn scenes. While I can’t share all of them, here are some of my favorites. Many thanks to all who sent in their photos.

Some of the most striking images were submitted by Harold Pfohl. I’m sharing with you his entire set of six images (including the one above), which he described to me:

These were taken along the C&O Canal at Carderock the morning of Nov. 9. The autumn colors were at their peak, the fog provided a muted background, and the low sun provided fine lighting for shots against the sun. It was the sort of morning that leaves me smiling inside with pleasure at being alive.

Pfohl’s images wonderfully show-off how striking fall foliages photographs can be captured in foggy conditions, much like CWG’s Kevin Ambrose did at the Tidal Basin the very next day.

Below you’ll find an assortment of additional great images from readers throughout the region...

“ I took this photo October 31, 2011 at about 8 a.m. It shows a field of frost-topped sorghum located on Clagett Landing Road in Upper Marlboro. Unusual crop for this area as corn and soybeans are usually grown around here.” (Joe Behun)
